Abstract

A síntese de zeólitas com o intuito de utilizá-las posteriormente como materiais adsorventes exige rigoroso controle das variáveis de processamento. Para cada tipo diferente de zeólita, existem variáveis de processo distintas para obtenção do tipo específico desejado. Neste trabalho os objetivos foram obter zeólita NaA partindo de caulim, para posteriormente obter zeólita 5A por meio de troca iônica com esta zeólita anteriormente sintetizada. Estas zeólitas, por sua vez, podem ser usadas como adsorventes altamente seletivos para adsorver, por exemplo, metais pesados de efluentes industriais. Os resultados obtidos foram satisfatórios, a metodologia utilizada mostrou-se eficiente. A partir do metacaulim comercial utilizado, obteve-se com sucesso zeólita tipo NaA, e por meio de trocas iônicas obteve-se zeólita 5A. A porcentagem de sódio trocada na zeólita final foi 61,4%.<br>Zeolites synthesis as adsorbing materials requires accurate control of the variables. There are distinct process variables for obtaining specific desired types depending on each different kind of zeolite to be synthesized. This paper was aimed at obtaining NaA zeolites from kaolin in order to obtain zeolites A afterwards through ionic exchange with the previously synthesized zeolite. These zeolites can then be used as highly selective adsorbents to adsorb, for instance, heavy metals in industrial effluents. The results obtained were satisfactory, the methodology was efficient. From the commercial metakaolin used NaA zeolite was obtained successfully, and through ionic exchanges 5A zeolite was obtained. The exchangeable sodium percentage in the final zeolite was 61.4%
